and 5 democrats sent the bill to president obama appeared with the families of sandy hook victims shortly thereafter. families must become a brief to position their elected leaders. not just to honor the memory of their children, but to protect the lives of all of our children. a few minutes ago 90 percent of democrats in the senate voted for that idea. but it's not going to happen. because 90 percent of republicans in the senate voted against it and supporting. the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. unfortunately, this pattern of untruths about this legislation serves a purpose. that intimidated a lot of senators. all in all this was a pretty shameful day for washington. this effort is not over. the president says come election time, supporters of gun control legislation are going to voice their support who voted against this bill. of this gun control package. the assault weapons ban votes. and the bid to block the sale of high capacity we will tell you about the young teens accused of the crime and why it has won the east bay neighborhood shaken. investigato
of the great communicators. i worked for bill clinton and he's pretty good. and barack obama when he's good he's very good. i think he needs to focus and roll up his sleeves and go up and talk to max baucus and mark pryor and heitkamp. but the democrats have been on the wrong side in preventing the right to vote. a bipartisan group of senators is trying to change that filibuster rule, and now with guns overwhelmingly in favor of background checks we ought to be putting the pressure on changing the rules of the senate that allow 54 senators who are in favor of the right to vote to be blocked by 46 senators not being allowed to vote. if i were advising as a crisis management matter that's the winning message as well as the obvious 80%-90% of the american people support this. >> michael: i hope that combination is the wake-up call on filibuster reform, as you say. we have the gun vote. we have boston, as if they weren't enough there could be as many as 15 dead in the texas fertilizer plant explosion in west texas. the cause is still under investigation. how big of a diversion is a story like this

the bill come back and testify if he likes the bill. i think the reception was good. i think, i will give you an example of how sometimes reporting is not accurate. one young man stood up and said i work for a pro-obama super pac registering voters. someone in the media describe him as someone who was from a generic voter registration group he worked for the president. that is a difficult person to get considering republicans so he was the beginning of the conversation. the other thing i would say is that you know things that annoy me is people want to just -- as completely lasted as some of the left-wing for being out of touch and knowing nothing about the southern strategy and that is why african-americans became democrats which is flat out wrong. look at the facts. in a huge way the statistics aren't great in the 20s but they say, some say hoover may have gotten two-thirds of the african-american vote and by most of the statistics roosevelt got two-thirds of the vote. a change in a huge way in 1932. the south side chicago was republican and had a republican congressman. he was elect go
